Ed Anderson, Global CIO, World Vision International sat down with Dark Reading editor, Sara Peters, at the InformationWeek News Desk at Interop ITX to talk about their award-winning security strategy. Anderson talked about the unique risks that World Vision, a non-profit that provides food, clothing, and protection to children around the world, faces. The 60-plus year-old company didn't have a security posture until four years ago, and Anderson shares how the culture changed to allow them to build out a proper security strategy.

Why so long? "When you're doing good, when you're out serving children in the communities, sometimes it's hard to believe there are people who would harm the children and their communities."
